You and up to two guests will visit the set of the CBS show S.W.A.T. in Los Angeles or Santa Clarita. This will include shadowing Creator/Executive Producer Aaron Rahsaan Thomas and having lunch on set if desired, as well as having all of your biggest questions about storytelling and Hollywood answered.

This hit CBS show starring Shemar Moore, Stephanie Sigman, Alex Russell, Lina Esco, Kenny Johnson, David Lim, and Jay Harrington is about a locally born and bred S.W.A.T. lieutenant who is torn between loyalty to the streets and duty to his fellow officers when he’s tasked to run a highly-trained unit that is the last stop for solving crimes in Los Angeles.

Aaron Rahsaan Thomas grew up in Kansas City, Kansas, developing a love for storytelling after completing a fifth-grade assignment to create an original Greek myth from scratch. As time passed, Aaron developed his passion for visual storytelling and attended Morehouse College. Aaron would also matriculate through the University of Kansas, earning honors in English Literature, before moving to Los Angeles and attending the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts for graduate school. After graduating from USC, Aaron was selected for the prestigious CBS Writers Mentoring Program.

Aaron began his professional career as a writer’s assistant on Soul Food: The Series and went on to work on the staff of such TV series as NBC’s Friday Night Lights, for which he received a Peabody Award, as well as CBS procedurals, such as Numb3rs and CSI: NY. Aaron has also served as a Co-Executive Producer on TNT’s Southland, Fox’s Sleepy Hollow, and Netflix’s The Get Down.

Aaron has also had two screenplays produced as feature films: Cover, directed by Bill Duke, and Assassination Games, starring Jean Claude Van Damme. He has also directed an ESPN 30 for 30 film about the USC football team during the Pete Carroll era titled Trojan War.

Aaron is currently the co-creator and Executive Producer of the new procedural series reboot of S.W.A.T., which airs on Thursday nights on CBS.
